Malty Mini Egg Crunch Bars

Malty Mini Egg Crunch
You've given uo chocolate for Lent?... then this recipe probably isn't for you - it contains nearly half a kilo of the stuff! But my goodness it is SO GOOD.

There's been quite a lot of Creme Egg love in the blogosphere over the last few weeks, so not wanting Mini Eggs to be forgotten completely, I thought I'd develop this yummy malty mini egg crunch bar. It's got 3 types of chocolate (dark, milk and white), Maltesers, Mini Eggs and digestive biscuits all bound together with copious amounts of butter and syrup. I don't think I need to tell you it is absolutely yum (as well as very naughty) and I'm sure would go down well at a charity bake sale or birthday party tea.

The ingredients listed below make 16 squares in a 20x20cm tin but the recipe could easily be doubled if you are catering for a crowd. Once made they are best kept in the fridge until you want them and will last for up to 2 weeks in an air tight container.

 It's a super easy treat to make and a great one for the kids to help with! My lot always enjoy bashing up the biscuits with a rolling pin...and then there's licking out the bowl afterwards. Luckily there are plenty of bowls to lick!

Why don't you have a go this weekend - it might be detrimental to the diet but when it tastes this good who cares?
